Red Bull released a pretty cool video on their youtube channel with old flatland footage and photos from the 80s till today. Enjoy the history lesson!
'Experience the evolution of Flatland BMX from the 80s to present day.
"STAGES" brings together two of the scene's most iconic riders, Red Bull athlete Yohei Uchino & the legendary Chad DeGroot as they travel through time re-exploring a range of tricks & styles from the Cherry Picker and Scuffing to the highly technical modern era of Flatland BMX.'
Alexandre kindly shared this video of his girlfriend Franceline with us. They are from France and it's cool to see there are some flatland ladies out there that you probably never hear about. Franceline seems to be working hard on all kinds of McCircle variations. Check her sunny August edit!

The annual KTGM Jam is coming up soon. This year it's scheduled for September 2: "KTGM JAM will be hosted for the 8th time in Budapest, Hungary, where flatland thrives once again. Get ready for a remarkable weekend with insane tricks and friendly faces in a breezy environment. Riders from all around Europe will meet up on the huge spot of KTGM (3500m2, 38000ft2) for the weekend, crowned by the JAM on Saturday, to train, chill and get motivated."
You can find more information, links and videos of the previous years here: KTGM Jam 2017
The jam will take place 1 week after the Bauer Flatland Fest so it's a cool opportunity to spend a week in Hungary and visit 2 events.
